9780060583316: Like a Charm: A Novel in Voices

Desire leaves a man destroyed – a young girl's curiosity reveals secrets better left hidden – an accidental encounter on a train ends violently – ambition leads to a curious exchange – an uncanny likeness changes two lives forever.

A novel in sixteen chilling parts, linked by a glittering charm bracelet which brings misfortune to everyone who handles it. In Like A Charm, the cream of British and American crime writers combine for a must-have collection. From nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave desert and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal and intrigue.

Review:

In Like a Charm, the cream of British and American crime writers combine for a tempting collection of linked short stories. From nineteenth-century Georgia to wartime Leeds, on a steam train across Europe, in the violent back streets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave desert and back to Georgia, each writer delivers a characteristic story of murder, betrayal and intrigue. And with such stellar contributors as Peter Robinson (writing about 1940s Leeds), Fidelis Morgan, Lynda La Plante (1970s Britain), Val McDermid (1980s Scotland) and flavour-of-the month Mark Billingham tackling contemporary London, some impressive writing is guaranteed. Like a Charm is the first collection of crime fiction to have one specific subject as the focus of every story and to take a geographical approach to storytelling.

From the Publisher:

KARIN SLAUGHTER, MARK BILLINGHAM, LEE CHILD, JOHN CONNOLLY, LYNDA LA PLANTE, DENISE MINA, PETER ROBINSON A STUNNING COLLECTION OF ORIGINAL LINKED STORIES FROM SOME OF THE BEST CRIME WRITERS TODAY
